Policy and Practice Considerations
• Impact of technical limitations of labor market
information vary by institution
• Institutions must partner with local economic
development entities and employers
• Many economic factors affecting employment
outcomes are beyond institutional control
CURRICULUM REVIEW
Dynamic Skills Audit
• A means to gauge education supply against
employer demand
• A methodology that incorporates traditional
and real-time labor market information into a
structured review of curriculum
• A way to determine how responsive course
content is to employer requirements
Note: KCTCS is participating in a pilot project to develop Dynamic Skills Audits with Jobs for the Future.

Policy and Practice Considerations
• Educational production one of many factors
that may contribute to supply/demand
mismatch
• Allows institutions to test data against
anecdotal experiences shared by employers
• Requires a high degree of flexibility (how
quickly can institutions respond to industry
demands?)

Policy and Practice Considerations
• Programs with poor employment outcomes
may generate revenue for the institution
• Tenure and accreditation requirements may
limit institutional ability to retrain and
reassign faculty
• Programs with poor employment outcomes
may serve a social/community service
function
